Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus, You have called me to be Your disciple and assured me that as I abide in Your word, You will reveal Your truths to me. You have promised me that Your truths will set me free. O Lord, I am here today both to hear and learn from Your word. Enlighten my mind with instruction from Your truths. Fill my heart with a desire to live in accordance with those truths, so that I might experience freedom from guilt, fear, and the control of Satan. Help me always to be faithful until the day in which You call me home. It is in Your name that I pray.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 119:1-8

First Reading: 

Psalm 119:9-18

God’s word-a combination of His law and gospel-reveal His truths to us, so that we might be cleansed, informed, and enriched. Let us seek our God and His word, for thereby and therein we will be blessed!

Second Reading: 

Romans 2:11-16

God’s law reflects His immutable (unchanging) will for mankind. God places a natural knowledge of that law in every person’s heart. God provided a written revelation of that law to Old Testament Israel through Moses. All of mankind one day will stand before God in judgment on the basis of that law.
